  • 吳曉樂/童話裡有人替你殘忍,這感覺真是太爽了──讀《永別了,白雪公主》

    文/吳曉樂,|,大塊文化2023年05月09日

    永別了,白雪公主 雖然封面明寫著《永別了,白雪公主》,作者碧翠絲・阿雷馬娜也很好心地在前言,提醒讀者,她這次要站在「醜惡的一邊」,還引用里爾克的「美不過是恐怖的開始」。翻開第一頁時我還是被嚇到身體向後一仰,不自覺地拉開與劇本的距離,好仔細打量每一位小矮人,不,實在是太陰森 more
  • 【主題繪本控】殺不死的白雪公主,原來故事背後還有這些細節!

    文/賴嘉綾2023年04月28日

    小時候家裡人來人往,根本沒有人知道什麼叫做「看書」,所謂閱讀,大概也只有看報紙和廣告;幼稚園時某次生病在家,老師來家裡關心這個一天上學三天生病的小孩,送了一盒彩色的童話故事書,開啟了我與圖畫故事書的緣分。那盒子裡的故事如果是有人死掉的我都不要再讀,而且希望媽媽永遠健康,因為家裡 more
 

內容簡介

In this dark, genre-defying picture-book adaptation of Snow White, acclaimed artist Beatrice Alemagna tells the story from the point of view of the jealous stepmother queen, to complicate the question of goodness and set into high relief the shadow side, with its capacity for evil, of human life.


Shortlisted for the Global Literature in Libraries Initiative’s Translated Young Adult Book Prize!


Once upon a time, a child was born with skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony: the princess Snow White. She is possessed of beauty and innocence, but there in the shadows lurks a queen who will remarry her widower father, a queen who is as empty and envious, as narcissistic and fractured as is every life that gets stuck in the endless reflecting pool or mirror of the self. Void of love, it is hatred that animates her.

But like all true fairy tales, this story doesn’t ask us to judge and condemn the queen and her hatred, but rather to consider the kinds of behaviors and situations that invite evil, and where true innocence or goodness might lie. Following the first-person account of the queen, this picture book for older readers illuminates her blinding obsession and insatiable jealousy, right up to the point of her violent undoing.

This large format picture book is made up of a repeating pattern of text and image: each double spread of text is followed by four striking full-spread paintings, which are as riveting as they are unsettling. A bold adaptation of the Grimm’s original text, this version of Snow White brilliantly puts us all in touch with the messy, shadowed, fraught, and fragile inwardness we each possess.

This is the second book to appear under Unruly, an imprint of picture books for older readers, and will include an author’s note and a short note to readers about how it continues to build this experimental framework of visually complex, sophisticated picture books for teens and adults.
